hi, thanks for your message, i'm glad that you like my work!
i do like this shot though the flower heads and the large leaf are a bit of a distraction. could you have removed them? also, there is a leaf right infront of the main subject that you maybe could have taken out. does your camera allow you to set the aperture so that you can blur the fore and back grounds?

Love the light - the way the bloom seems to glow, yet the definition still remains thru the rest of the field. Awesome shot.

Lovely image, I love the soft light on the lily flower and lily leaves and the different textures of the reeds.
Thanks for your kind comment on my PF.

You asked my opinion, for that I'm flattered, oh and thanks for your comments on my lemon meringue. The flower is lost amongst all the greenery and it would have been better perhaps if we could see the front of the flower head. otherwise a good start. Hope this helps

I like the way the flower is lit, but yes, ti is lost in the greenery--
11 Sep 2007 6:46PM
I quite like the fact the sun goes through the petals. it makes the waterlilly glow. I also like the greenery all around. JNC

Like this one Danny,the lone flower stands out very well here. The lighting is good and shows the different shades of green very well.

Hi Danny, I do like your image, for me though the eye doe's not lead to the flower strongly enough also, the flowers pastel shading fades slightly against the predominent green of the shot, perhaps a more shallow depth of field and closer offset crop of the flower. Still a good shot. I hope you agree with some of my very amature opinions

Hi Danny,
You have asked for my opinion and as with some of the others I think it is a good image but lost somewhat in the greenery. A tighter crop would make a lot better shot. Also the leaf in front of the flower is a bit distracting. The light is very good though and the subject nice.
A good start. When a lot of us join our pictures are either OK or good, but the longer you are on the sight, the better you get. Hope this helps. Annette

I really like this shot and although the flower is a little lost in the greenery I do think this adds to its charm. Certainly deserves 30 votes.

Just keep on keeping on, and you'll improve. The photographers on this site are awesome and as you can see... many are willing to offer helpful advice. Just keep looking through their work, pick a few favourites and watch what they do, then experiment. Post what you like, not what you think others will like and see what reaction you get. The biggest thing is that you enjoy doing it.
Cheers, martin

The last lotus at innisfree - lovely. You captured it beautfully. I actually like seeing the flower hidden among the reeds.

I love this shot! The lighting is spot on. I love the way the flower contrasts with the foliage. The only thing that might improve this good shot would be to place the flower of centre maybe about one third into the picture.
16 Sep 2007 5:04PM
Thanks ted for the advice.

Lovely image. I think its one of those shots that actually should break against the rule of thirds. Harmonizes well with the title.
